Helping the most vulnerable survive COVID-19 in India

Oxfam is building on its work over the past year to help the poorest and most at-risk people survive the second wave of coronavirus in 2021.

When the second wave of COVID-19 hit India in late April, it created a public health crisis that left hospitals overwhelmed and people literally dying in the streets. In less than a month, the country saw more than 100,000 deaths, bringing the total death toll to more than 300,000—the third highest in the world behind the United States and Brazil.
